Genome Institute of Singapore, NimbleGen Combine for SARS ID Chip

The Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and NimbleGen Systems last week announced a microarray-based assay to identify strains of the SARS virus. The new method allows the molecular test to be completed in three days and will be used to complement existing methods.

GIS used data obtained from its previous sequencing of five SARS virus strains to derive a single consensus sequence for the SARS virus and used that sequence to produce a SARS-specific detection chip.
